Big Mother’s Day weekend for gays!
–It’s official: Michael Sam is a Ram. St Louis head coach Jeff Fisher drafted the college football standout as its 249th pick (249/256) making Sam the first out gay NFL player…(now if we can just get knuckleheads to stop gagging about the celebratory kiss he shared with his boyfriend. Sheesh!)
–Arkansas makes 18! A state judge struck down Arkansas’s ban on same-sex marriage making Arkansas the first southern US state to allow same- sex couples to marry.
–On a national talk show, the US Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, said the US military should review the ban and the medical reasons that bar transgender people from serving in the US military. Once again, we must wait, and see, and continue this fight for OUR rights. Here’s hoping President Obama makes the fight a priority and marshals transgender equality through executive order.
